Croatia vs Morocco preview

These two teams met in matchday one of the competition and played out a goalless draw.

Croatia were the team expected to win that match, but Morocco have certainly made a name for themselves ahead of their reunion at the end of the tournament.

Zlatko Dalic's team will be disappointed to fail to go as far as they did in the 2018 competition, but Morocco have gone much further than they would have expected before they met Croatia in November.

The African team have already made history and they will rue their missed opportunities against France in the semi-final.

They can bounce back by securing the bronze in this match, though, if they manage to overcome Luka Modric and Co. on Saturday.

Croatia vs Morocco tips and predictions

These teams played out a goalless draw when they met in the first round and only one of Morocco's matches has had over 2.5 goals in it. Backing under 2.5 goals in this match at 10/11 (1.91) may be worth backing in this match, then.
